Game Intro News:
The Indiana Pacers had little trouble picking up their first road win of the new year last time out. A matchup with the Orlando Magic wouldn't appear to give them too much of a challenge either.The Pacers will try to keep rolling Wednesday night when they visit the Magic, losers in 11 of 12 and a season-high six in a row at home.

Indiana (24-15) has won 14 of 18 but had also dropped three straight on the road before delivering a 103-76 thumping of lowly Charlotte on Tuesday. The Pacers, who hadn't won away from Indiana since Dec. 22, held the Bobcats to 34.7 percent shooting and Roy Hibbert led a group of four players in double figures with 18 points.

It was the eighth time this season that Indiana has allowed fewer than 80 points and it's giving up only 88.9 per game. That's helped the Pacers compensate for an offense that's averaging just 91.3.

"Our defense is a beast. We're leading in a number of different defensive categories. We have great length and these guys are committed to trying to be the best defense in the NBA," coach Frank Vogel said. "(Our offense) can get clicking and we can get really hot at times and when it does, like tonight, look at what happened.

"We are trying to commit to the running game more. We got 19 fast-break points in the first half. Big difference in the game. We're playing good basketball."

The Magic (13-24), meanwhile, have not been playing good basketball.

This made me laugh. Sounds like it's out of a song by Plies.



Anyways, nice to see an actual gamethread for once.
